For those of you who don't, how do you get access? Do you just pull up the first bar and hope it isn't attached, or do you try a few...?

I'm just wondering because my hive is getting full. Getting rid of the follwer would offer that much more room...

Thanks,

Adam

The only top bar hives I don't use follower boards in are my nucs. They are essentially 7 bar top bar hives with the same internal dimensions as my full-size hives. I've had a few of them become entirely full and either had to break off one of the combs or remove one of the ends of the hive in order to detach the comb.

In a follower board-less TBH I'm guessing that most users simply monitor the comb production and make sure it doesn't fill up. :)
